Works on Mac. Not PC. Arggh.

Problem: I have a Mac.

I got this page working on my Mac, tested in FOUR different browsers
(Mozilla, Explorer, Opera, iCab):
http://www.efn.org/~bsharvy/manlesbos.shtml

One day, I look at it from the public library (Explorer/Windows) and
the CSS linking to the poll (bottom of page) is completely screwed up.
Not displaying corrrectly at all. I can't figure out what is wrong by
looking--thinking it might be a bug in Explorer/Windows. The problem
is, I have no way to debug because the problem *only* happens in
Windows, and I have only a Mac. Any suggestions on 1) how to fix a
Windows-only problem in a Mac-only work environment, 2) what the
problem on the page might be?

Not surprising. Internet Explorer for Mac and Internet Explorer for
Windows are two completely different browsers. They have nothing in common
except the name. Seriously.

Virtual PC?
VNC into a friend's Windows box and run Internet Explorer from there?
Use a service like browsercam.com?
Find a friend using Linux/x86 and WINE and use X11 to display IE/win on
your screen?

What is "completely screwed up"? I see nothing wrong, either in IE6 or
Mozilla v1.7 on a PC. Since I do not know what is supposed to be there, I
cannot say why it isn't.

I fixed it. The problem was that IE/Windows doesn't handle
:first-letter very well. Removing that pseudo-class caused IE/Windows
to draw the border correctly around the text.
